The island of Vis is one the most precious islands in Dalmatia. It was relatively untouched by massive tourism due to its distant position from the coast.  Vis began opening its doors to the world and even Croatia since its independence. It is a truly lost and found treasure. Vis actually became one the most popular places in Croatia due to its famous beaches and caves. It’s the home of the stunning Stiniva beach and Blue Cave, as well as a host of other attractions that will dazzle you. Don’t forget to try the local food, especially “viška pogača”, and exquisite wines.

Things to do in Vis

MUST-SEE ATTRACTIONS

Blue Cave

This is one of the main reasons why people came to Croatia! Blue Cave is one of the most unique natural phenomena of the world. With its silvery-blue color, created by the refraction of sunlight entering through a crack in the cave, it leaves everyone impressed. It was only recently the cave was open for the public and it’s been a must-see attraction ever since.

Green Cave

The cave on Ravnik island is well-known as the Green Cave. Over the years the cave has been formed by abrasion, with two entrances and an aperture on the top through which light enters, reflecting the colours from the sea bottom, painting its walls green. It had a great role in the period of the Second World War as it was used as a shelter for warships.

Stiniva Beach

Rated the top beach in Europe in 2016 – and for good reason. Stiniva Bay is located in the southern part of the island of Vis and is approachable from the sea through a narrow passage where the bay broadens and ends on a beautiful beach. There is no road leading to the bay and for this reason, it has managed to preserve its natural beauty.

Fort George

Named after the English commander of Vis, George Duncan Robertson, Fort George is hard to miss. There are gaps for cannons on the interior terrace and all the walls are secured by loop-holes – best experienced on a bike as it’s a mostly uphill, but it’s going downhill where you’ll experience the spectacular view.
